Adventures of a Novelty Fabric and Selvage Obsessed Quilter

Glad you stopped by!

I am a busy wife and the mom of 19 year old twins, a boy and a girl who are Sophomores at Syracuse University.

I have been quilting since the spring of 2008. I love novelty fabrics, colorful and unique.

Selvage quilting is addictive! Who knew the "junk" we cut off and threw out would be what I now save! I started a new tradition when I travel--visiting quilt stores! I particularly enjoy going to stores that have been named in the Quilt Sampler Featured Shop Lists-

Beach Umbrellas Allover

I recently won a yard of this
great fabric from 
because I played a game on 
their Facebook page.
If you are on Facebook, be sure
to stop by and like their page.

I have visited this store twice, and 
they have an incredible selection!

Just look at that selvage!!

Giggle feathers black

I had purchased a FQ of this in purple from
at the NJ Quilt show.
At this show, they had it in black as well

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

On to the show!!

My first purchase was the official thimble
from the AQS booth.
My mother-in-law
collected thimbles, and now I have for years.
Note to self- take a photo of 
them and post it to the blog!
